- 2021 DOXOLOGY II
January 11, 2021 - January 13, 2021
3:00 pm - 3:15 pm
We Also Rejoice in our Sufferings
January 11-13, 2021
Lindenwood Retreat & Conference Center — Plymouth, IN
Over the last 13 years, grads have requested that a DOXOLOGY II program be created, allowing them to continue the work they began in the three-part Classic Program. We will be building upon the original curriculum and extending the conversation about what it means to be a faithful pastor who cares for the souls of others and one’s self. DOX II will continue the conversation about attentive and intentional soul care we started when you originally enrolled in the Classic Program.
A myriad of competing spiritualities plus the complexity of social and moral confusion pervades the 21st Century world. Human spiritual and emotional health are under increasing pressure, creating a need for pastors who are themselves spiritually and emotionally healthy as well as equipped with new and effective tools to make a difference in the lives of the people they serve. The opportunity to think about these things in the company of your brothers, with skilled facilitators will surely be a blessing for you and those whom you serve.
DOXOLOGY II is a one-part program (tentative schedule below). We will revisit retreat features which were well received in DOX I (the Classic Series), employing a similar pattern of presentations, collegial conversation, worship and fellowship.
The Presenters for DOX II 2021 are familiar to you and oft requested. The Rev. Dr. John Kleinig, master teacher, author, and pastor to pastors, from Adelaide, Australia will offer two presentations. Due to significant COVID restrictions all over the globe, Dr. Kleinig will be joining us virtually/electronically on the “big screen” for his presentations. The Rev. Dr. Gregory Schulz, well-known to DOX grads, and Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller will also be serving as featured presenters for DOX II.
Featured Speakers and Topic Titles:
- Dr. John Kleinig — “From Shame and Blame to Honor and Praise: How Jesus Cares for People Who Have been Shamed” (Two parts)
- Dr. Gregory Schulz — “The Fellowship of His Sufferings: Pastoral Care in this Time of Suffering” (Three parts)
- Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller — “The Cross and the Crosses: Pastor as Partner in Tribulation” (Two parts)
